AVEVA, a global leader in industrial software, driving digital transformation and sustainability, has launched AVEVA™ PI Data Infrastructure, a fully-integrated hybrid data solution providing easy scalability, centralised management, and the ability to share data collaboratively via the cloud.
AVEVA PI Data Infrastructure is the latest offering in the market-leading AVEVA PI System portfolio, which helps companies collect, enrich, analyse and visualise operations data to achieve deeper insight and operational excellence. Moving to hybrid infrastructure gives industrial companies the flexibility, scalability and security needed to deliver valuable, high-fidelity data to authorised users and applications in any location. The initial release also gives customers the option to use the OpenID Connect protocol for user authentication, enabling enterprise-wide single sign on. Other enterprise-class data management features will be delivered over several releases.
AVEVA PI Data Infrastructure makes it easier for companies to collect and use real-time operations data in industrial environments that increasingly include sensor-enabled legacy systems, remote assets and IIoT devices. The hybrid architecture gives data access to more decision makers who rely on operations data to resolve problems and develop business insights, thereby reducing the total cost and effort of operations data management. By achieving seamless data sharing with any trusted collaborator, companies can overcome costly data silos, modernise and streamline user access and aggregate real-time and historical data for wider use and consumption. AVEVA PI Data Infrastructure is available via subscription using AVEVA Flex credits.
Harpreet Gulati, SVP – Head of PI System Business at AVEVA said: “No other industrial software company offers a fully-integrated, seamless data infrastructure that enables the fast, secure flow of real-time, high-fidelity data to anywhere it is needed – across multiple plants, at the edge, or in a trusted community over the cloud – with complete data integrity. We want to provide our customers with the flexibility to deploy across any of these areas, enabling them to increase sustainability, operating efficiency, asset reliability, and organisational agility.”
Customers are embracing the new offering. Giovanna Ruggieri, Head of ICT at Italy’s EP Produzione, a subsidiary of the European energy giant, EPH, commented: “EP is actively pursuing digital transformation to maximise operational excellence and improve processes to support the business.
To continue the journey, and better embrace the digital transformation, we need greater flexibility and integration at all levels, a data infrastructure that can give us full visibility across our multi-site operating environment that always keeps cyber security as high priority.”
“We appreciate AVEVA PI Data Infrastructure’s aggregate tag subscription model because it allows us to better manage our current and future needs in a smart way, with AVEVA currently proposing, for us, one of the best solutions on the market.”
